PwC Luxembourg's response to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19)

Given the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and its declaration by the World Health Organisation (WHO) as a public health emergency, PwC Luxembourg has taken actions to ensure the safety, health and wellbeing of our people, clients, guests, suppliers and contractors.   

We have implemented a quarantine policy for our own staff coming back from China, Macau, Hong Kong, Singapore, Iran, South Korea, Japan, Northern Italy (Emilia-Romagna, Piedmont, Lombardy, Veneto), France (Cluster areas : Oise, Haute-Savoie, Morbihan, area of Mulhouse) or for anyone who may have visited any infected areas.

If you have traveled in those areas recently, may we ask you to act responsibly and therefore apply to yourself a similar approach when registered to one of our events. Please note that we will continue to follow updated information from the WHO regarding restricted travel as well as follow further instructions.

Don't hesitate to reach out to your PwC contact in case you have any question regarding the measures we have taken or on the event.

The steps we have taken internally

We are closely following the recommendations of the local and international health authorities - including those of the surrounding countries - and we're communicating on a regular basis with our teams.

Concretely, we have put in place the following steps:

  1. Activating our Business Continuity Plan (BCP)
  2. Establishing a dedicated team to monitor the situation daily and providing a hotline for any questions.
  3. As from Monday 16 March, maximising the use of Home Based Working and restricting any movement between offices.  
  4. Focusing on our people who have traveled to the WHO identified countries and asking them, as a precaution, to stay at home for a 14-day quarantine period when they come back from their travels.
  5. Discouraging, for the time being, unnecessary travel to countries with a high level of risk.  
  6. Putting in place a dedicated page on our intranet and keeping it regularly updated with news and information as it arises.
